Martin Zuther updates traKmeter to v1.05.0

Martin Zuther traKmeter

Martin Zuther has released version 1.05.0 of traKmeter, a free loudness meter effect plug-in.

Most digital audio equipment sadly only has peak meters. This is readily understandable as you want to avoid digital clippings by all means. However, the lack of average meters makes correct gain staging almost impossible.

For gain staging, you need average meters or – even better – a combination of peak and average meters. And this is were traKmeter comes in.

traKmeter has an average level meter that is centered around -20 dB FS RMS and a peak level meter that is aligned to -9 dB FS. It supports stereo and 8-channel audio signals, has two scales, two ballistics modes and is very easy to use. Additionally, all meters have been thoroughly validated.

Changes in traKmeter v1.05.0

  • LV2 plug-in (GNU/Linux).
  • Experimental 64-bit version for Windows.
  • Display maximum level on overload.
  • Smooth switching of crest factor.
  • Full re-calibration.

The traKmeter plug-in for Windows and Linux (VST/LV2/Standalone) is available to download free of charge.

Martin Zuther updates K-Meter to v1.22

Martin Zuther K-Meter

Martin Zuther has released version 1.22 of K-Meter, a free software tool for metering and monitoring audio levels.

Implementation of a K-System meter according to Bob Katz’ specifications.

All meters and counters have been thoroughly validated. So far, K-Meter only supports mono and stereo signals, but I have added experimental support for surround sound. I’d love to get some feedback on this.

The K-System average meters register RMS only, but support of ITU BS.1770-1 loudness weighting is planned.

Changes in K-Meter v1.22

  • Windows: run-time dynamic linking to FFTW, releases include FFTW DLL.
  • Windows: stand-alone application (ASIO, DirectX).
  • Manual with full documentation.
  • Another complete re-validation of K-Meter.
  • Validation is now possible directly from within K-Meter.
  • Wave files and instructions for validation of peak meter, overflow counter, phase correlation meter and stereo meter; corresponding fixes.
  • Experimental support for 5.1 surround sound.
  • Changed overflow detection.
  • Notify host of plug-in latency.
  • Silenced output for unsupported sample rates.
  • Fixed a few memory leaks and some minor bugs.
  • Streamlined code and started commenting the code.
  • Beautified meters.

K-Meter is available as a freeware effect released under the GPL license. Linux and Windows VST plugin versions are available to download, as well as a standalone version for Linux and the source code.
